A Russian-cum-Belarus-sponsored resolution at the Geneva conference on human rights against racism and xenophobia expressed deep concern at the tendency of some states to glorify former members of the SS, instituting monuments in their honour and allowing some of these people to take out marches. Among the 36 countries that supported it were India, China, Ukraine and Armenia.
The vote was opposed by some of the leading members of the so-called ‘‘free world'', whose leading nations have been active in attempts to impose 'peace' solutions in Yugoslavia, Palestine, Iraq and Cyprus. The countries against the resolution included the USA, Japan, Great Britain, France, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Germany, Australia, Hungary and Croatia.
Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia and Croatia, all new or likely NATO members and strong EU candidate nations, have witnessed a rise of state sponsored glorification of former members of the Waffen SS-voluntary detachments, attended by leading government politicians.
Senior Anglo-Saxon and German EU and NATO members inexplicably refused to condemn such outrages.
A Washington based political scientist pointed out that the US and West Germany eagerly recruited former Nazis post-WWII in their efforts to destabilise Soviet states, and as recently as the 1990s Croatian Nazi emigres supported by the CIA channelled huge funds into revived Ustasha regiments during the Balkan wars of the 1990s. It was notable, he said, that independent Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia were all governed by leaders who either denied the holocaust or partici
pated in rallies for 'victims of communism' at which speakers glorified Slavs who had collaborated with the Nazi occupation. Nazi sympathizers, known as NATO-NAZIS, were also compliant allies in today's worldwide export of democracy.
